The update tries to create the "modificationDate" column in the "Albums" table, 
but it already exists. The cause is unclear, the digiKam4.db was already used 
with a newer digiKam version? The update has already been aborted and 

Install SQLiteBrowser, open digiKam4.db, go to Albums table and delete 
modificationDate column.
